WEKA AG has been awarded the new ‘silver’ classification by the independent audit company Eco Vadis for its commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR).

WEKA achieved 58 points in the first audit and certification, receiving a classification of ‘silver’ and the second-best rating for CSR.

CSR is a company’s responsibility for its effect on society and includes social, ecological and economic aspects.

Marcel Fürst, Head of Sales and Marketing, said, “We see this good result as validation of our sustainability management system, but also as an incentive to continue improving through further measures because only an intact environment guarantees a successful future.”

Examination areas

The analysis system underlying the audit includes 21 criteria in the four topic areas of environment, fair labour practices, ethics and fair business practices and supply chain.

Sustainability is one of WEKA’s central values. As a global provider in the field of fill level measurement and valve technology and in the production of cryogenic components, WEKA strives to take responsibility when it comes to sustainability. The company’s sustainability strategy is designed for the long term and is geared towards both the environment, the employees and the relationships with business partners.
